Several months ago I wrote an entry complaining about the shrill way the kettle whistles, and it is true that I do not like that. But you can dislike one thing about a kettle and still be fond of it.

It rarely whistles anyway, because I have learned its moods. I know the whispering sound it makes when it is halfway ready to boil, and the purring sound it makes when it is thirty seconds from boiling. When it starts to shake slightly, I am already standing there to pull it off the heat, and it just goes "WOO-wooooo..."
